Financials analyst Ian Katz quoted in MarketWatch

"Americans have lodged thousands of mortgage complaints with the agency Republicans want to gut" by Andrea Riquier


Ian Katz was quoted in Andrea Riquier's MarketWatch article, "Americans have lodged thousands of mortgage complaints with the agency Republicans want to gut".

Riquier writes: 

Capital Alpha Partners' Ian Katz wrote in a client note Monday that some pieces of the Financial Choice Act, the Republican legislation that would restructure the CFPB, are "politically suspect. That is, they would expose supporters to criticism that they are hurting consumers or pandering to big banks...it wouldn't take a very creative mind to come up with a biting commercial saying incumbent candidate X voted to eliminate publication of consumer commplaints. That might be hard to defense in a public setting."
